Q Since we moved house, my 3-year-old has been terribly constipated.
He doesn’t poo for days and then he’ll scream in pain and the poor lad will push out a brick! Could it be the change of water? Cerys, 35 A Constipation is very common at this age. A change of water won’t cause it, anxiety over your house move is a more likely trigger. re-establishing his bowel pattern means a highfibre diet, toilet training and possibly laxatives. Talk to your GP or health visitor.
